Indigenous Knowledge

Indigenous culture and knowledge inform and inspire all aspects of FNTI. In addition to being Indigenous owned and governed, and primarily employing Aboriginal faculty and staff, FNTI:

  • Creates culturally-rich learning environments – Elders are often involved in learning sessions and ceremonies, celebrations, circles and traditional activities are integrated into learning experiences.

  • Promotes Indigenous cultural practices and learning methodologies in the classroom.

  • Implements Indigenous Learning Outcomes in all curriculum.

  • Ensures Indigenous learners see themselves and their realities reflected in the curriculum, course delivery & support services.  

  • Promotes Indigenous perspectives by including Elders, Indigenous professionals, alumni & community representatives on Program Advisory Committees.

  • Provides learner, staff and faculty access to its newly-created Cultural Resource Room in the main campus building.
